Serena Williams has showcased her sparking engagement ring in a sweet Reddit post with her fiancé.

The champion tennis player titled the post as "Engagement shoe game" and featured a photo of herself and her fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

The loved-up pair, who have been dating for two years, smile widely in the photo as they pose side by side, while Serena (35) showcases her sparkling engagement ring as she rests her hand on her fiancé's chest.

The athlete announced the news of her engagement in true 2016 style on Reddit by sharing a poem to the site just over one week ago.

“I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited. Destination: Rome,” the 35-year-old wrote.

“To escort me to my very own ‘charming.’ Back to where our stars first collided. And now it was full circle. At the same table we first met by chance.”

“But by choice. Down on knee. He said 4 words. And I said yes.”

Her other half shared the news on his own Facebook page, writing "she said yes".
